An accurate job description can help your employees understand elements of their role are important to your farm business, how you expect them to contribute and who is accountable.
When employees understand their role in the context of your farm business, then they are much more likely to perform at their best.

To help develop your job descriptions further, DairyNZ have worked alongside Primary ITO, New Zealand Young Farmers, Dairy Women’s Network, Federated Farmers and the Primary Industry Capability Alliance to describe the experience, level of supervision, skills, knowledge and attributes expected in the five key on-farm role categories.
